I am interested in the session on Monday for the Census for one of our secretaries. What do I need to do to sign up for the session. Is it on line?
I will try to give you a call too.

Subject: Upcoming Educator Census trainings via LNV
I wanted to give my IT colleagues a heads-up about trainings that the DOE is going to be doing via the Learning Network of Vermont. See below.
If your school was on the VILN and you have not reconnected to the LNV, please contact Northeast Computer Systems via Tim King [log in to unmask] or Paul Garstki [log in to unmask] or me as soon as possible so that we can facilitate you school's use of the system. People will be asked to RSVP if they plan to attend the training noted below, but I am anticipating that we will have interest from schools that are not currently connected to LNV.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Title: Upcoming Educator Census Trainings
Audience: Curriculum Coordinators, Special Education Directors, Human Resources Managers, Principals, Career and Technical Center Directors, Central Office Administrative Assistants, Guidance Directors
The Educator Quality Division will be providing two training sessions on how to complete the 2007-2008 Educator Census on February 11, 2008 and February 14, 2008. Both sessions will be provided via the Learning Network of Vermont (LNV) and will be from 1:00-3:00 in the afternoon.
Completing the Educator Census accurately is essential since HQT statistics (including the percentage of core academic subject classes not taught by highly qualified teachers) are compiled for your local education agency (LEA) based on the information that you submit to us. LEAs are required to publicly report these statistics every year. In addition, HQT statistics are included in required federal reporting by the state. Reporting errors can result in the calculation of incorrect percentages of classes being taught by teachers who are not HQT for their assignment(s). Especially in small schools, even minor errors in Census reporting can result in big changes in the reported HQT percentages.
These sessions are open to any interested individuals.
